Course Overview:
“State of the Art and Beyond”
This course will transfer pertinent technology “know-how” to enhance the knowledge and competency of professionals involved in process design, evaluation, selection and development of gas processing, conversion and utilization facilities. The course will mentor inroads towards future innovation towards a better more sustainable energy environment.
The trainer will discuss advanced processes used to dehydrate natural gas, remove acid gas components and mercury to meet existing and future specifications for pipeline gas dew point control to natural gas liquefaction and (LNG) regasification.

The participants will learn how to apply thermodynamic and physical properties and their correlations to evaluate various options to meet desired gas processing objectives and quickly determine efficiency and energy requirements.

The trainer will share many original patented conceptual ideas, equipment designs and “outside-the-box” process schemes from CO2 capture and sequestration (CCS) to Fischer Tropsch Gas-to-Liquids (FT GTL) in order to stimulate “brain-storming” discussions.
Finally each participant will receive valuable professionally prepared CD ROM and bound photo copy documentation containing original course presentation material (in over 600 graphic color slides) to bring back to their home office, to keep for future review, and/or freely share with colleagues and other interested parties.
